    Today I found a file named 'sletmig' in my user's directory. A colleague of mine found that on his Mac, too, but we weren't able to figure out, what it should do. It opens in text editor and contains the following:

    declare -x HOME="/Users/dts"
    declare -x OLDPWD
    declare -x PATH="/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/dts"
    declare -x PWD="/"
    declare -x SECURITYSESSIONID="aa23df0"
    declare -x SHELL="/bin/bash"
    declare -x SHLVL="1"
    declare -x USER="dts"
    declare -x __CF_USER_TEXT_ENCODING="0x1F5:0:3"

    Has anybody an idea, what this is for?

    Shell variables. You should get something similiar when you open Terminal and type "export". It was probably spit out by some process. I'd consider it safe to delete the file.

    No worries, just delete it. Reason: In danish "slet mig" means delete me, so the is actually asking you to delete it... :p

    As your system most likely doesn't speak danish I wouldn't (if I were you) delete the file because of my advice... Just to get it straight...
